# largerEq

Learn how to use the Boolean "larger or equal" (>=) operator in Notion formulas.
The larger or equal (`>=`) operator returns true if its left operand is greater than or equal to its right operand. It accepts numeric, date, and Boolean operands.
1
number >= number
2
Boolean >= Boolean
3
date >= date
4
5
largerEq(number, number)
6
largerEq(Boolean, Boolean)
7
largerEq(date, date)
You can also use the function version, `largerEq()`.

## Example Formulas

1
2 >= 1 // Output: true
2
3
42 >= 42 // Output: true
4
5
// Boolean values equate to 1 (true) and 0 (false).
6
true >= false // Output: true
7
8
true >= true // Output: true
9
10
// For dates, "less than" equates to "before".
11
now() >= now() // Output: true
Good to know: When comparing dates, "larger" = "later".
Good to know: The largerEq (`>=`) operator cannot be chained in a Notion formula. A formula like `3 >= 2 >= 1` won't work. Use the and operator to get around this - e.g. 3` `>=` 2 and 2 >= 1`.

## Example Database

This example database records the powerlifting totals for a few lifters and compares them against the USPA standards for different lifting levels. The Level formula outputs the lifter’s current level. ### Explanation

1
// Compressed
2
prop("Name") + "'s Level is " + ((prop("Total") >= 1642) ? "Elite" : ((prop("Total") >= 1508) ? "Master" : ((prop("Total") >= 1355) ? "Class I" : ((prop("Total") >= 1191) ? "Class II" : ((prop("Total") >= 1041) ? "Class III" : ((prop("Total") >= 903) ? "Class IV" : "Novice"))))))

prop("Name") + "'s Level is " + (
6
(prop("Total") >= 1642) ? "Elite" :
7
((prop("Total") >= 1508) ? "Master" :
8
((prop("Total") >= 1355) ? "Class I" :
9
((prop("Total") >= 1191) ? "Class II" :
10
((prop("Total") >= 1041) ? "Class III" :
11
((prop("Total") >= 903) ? "Class IV" : "Novice")
12
)))))
This formula uses a series of nested if-then statements (using the conditional operators `?` and `:`) to check the numeric value in the Total property against the minimum requirements for USPA powerlifting levels (specifically, those for the raw 220 weight class).
